Murren to Jungfrau

Forgive me if this information is posted elsewhere, but I have searched for it and can't find it.

I'm trying to figure out whether it would be better to travel from Interlochen to Jungfrau or Murren to Jungfrau. Is rail available from Murren to Jungfrau direct, or do you have to change trains in Wengen or elsewhere?

It is more a question of whether it is better to stay in Interlaken or Mürren. Suggest you do some reearch at www.myswitzerland.com/en-gb/home.html

No. See map for routing. You will need to change to cable car at Grütschalp. Then to train at Lauterbrunnen and again at Kleine Scheidegg.

For both Murren and Interlaken as a base, you could change trains at Lauterbrunnen (from Interlaken, you could go through Grindewald, instead, but that doesn't save you any time or money).

From Murren, you take the train to Grutschalp, and cable car down to Lauterbrunnen, or take the cable car down to Stechelberg, and the bus from there to Murren. In my opinion, the advantage of Murren over Interlaken is that, when you get up and going in the morning, you can actually see the Jungfaujoch, and get an first hand view of what the weather situation is. The online sites are helpful, but the final decision on whether or not that day is going to be suitable for the Jungfrau is best made by simply looking at the conditions first thing in the morning when you are ready to start the journey. You can't do that from a hotel in Interlaken--there you have to rely on forecasts and web cams.
